Registration Begins for “Marketplace A.D. 29” Vacation Bible School at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Coos Bay
Coos Bay, Oregon – May 23, 2016 – Registration is underway for Vacation Bible School at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Coos Bay, set for July 11th through the 13th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The program’s theme, “Marketplace 29 A.D.,” will acquaint area children with their Christian heritage from the time that Jesus was living and teaching, according to Pastor Christy Close Erskine.
“A Bible land setting will be created on the church grounds, and activities will also reflect traditions of long ago. Children will be grouped into small family tribes, and will participate in areas such as marketplace craft activities, singing, story telling, synagogue lessons, dancing and games,” notes Pastor Christy.
Enrollment in the program is for children ages 3 through 11 years (entering fifth grade in the fall), and registrations will be accepted through June 27th, as space allows for each age group. Preschool children are welcome and encouraged and will experience the camp and “marketplace” through activities designed especially for them. All children of the community are welcome to take part in the three-day program.
Registration forms are available at the church office, 400 Highland Ave., behind The World building in Coos Bay. For more information about registering for Vacation Bible School, call Pastor Christy Close Erskine or Julianna Seldon at 541-269-5829.
